What is a cardiac arrest?

An electrical problem in the heart causes cardiac arrest. This electrical problem causes the heart to stop pumping blood around the body and to the brain.
A cardiac arrest causes the person to fall unconscious and stop breathing. Without any intervention, the person will die within minutes.

What is cardiopulmonary resuscitation?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions often with artificial ventilation to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathe in a person in cardiac arrest.

You should only perform CPR if the casualty is:

  • unconscious and not breathing
  • unconscious and not breathing normally.

Why is cardiopulmonary resuscitation vital?

By performing chest compressions and rescue breaths, you are taking over the role of their heart and lungs, pumping blood and oxygen around their body. Performing chest compressions only (hands only) will still be of benefit until the emergency services arrive.

Remember, every second counts. Any delay can quickly reduce a person's chance of survival.
